I have two ESX 5.5 servers that share data on two SANs. I need to power everything off to perform an electrical test.
Last time i powered off the ESX servers by shutting down all the VM's manually (logging in and clicking shutdown). then i click ed on the ESX and shut it down. But it failed all the shutdown VM's to the other ESX. Which i had to manually move back when the server came back online.
Is there a better way to shutdown vCenter 5.5?
